You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

What all the cool squirrels are doing.

Smoking cigarettes is no longer the cool thing that was seen as ubiquitous in society as little as three to four decades ago.  Even in some of the most conservative states, there are usually more places you CAN’T smoke than places where it’s still OK to light one up.  Between larcenous sin taxes, strict no smoking laws, and of course those fun to read Surgeon General’s Warnings… smokers have become self-made pariahs and the habit may very well be on its way to being weeded out of society at some point in the future…

But don’t tell this squirrel.  He’s gotta be part of the hip crowd.  Hey, is that a cigarette in your mouth, buddy?  Don’t you know this is a public park, and that is most definitely a NON-SMOKING tree!!!!

What’s that you say?  Oh…….. it’s MARIHUANA?

Well, why didn’t you say so in the first place?  Carry on, Saturday Squirrel dude!  Just don’t bogart that joint…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Looks like a party joint to me……I think that squirrel is on his way to a PAR-TAY.

    Fun Fact: The last cigarette ad to air on tv was for Virginia Slims, Dec 31, 1970 (I think, could have been ’71 it’s been a few decades since I saw that on a documentary)

    A stoned squirrel! Now that I’d like to see. I’d put out a pile of nuts in the shell, and then sit back to watch the fun.

    • I have seen some squirrels act like they’ve been inhaling a little too much of the funky stuff. They’re barely distinguishable from their sober counterparts, though…

  4. In my state, I think the strains are a lot stronger, thus making ours more hoodlum-ish. #GangsterSciuridae

    It turns me on when you link to my blog…
    Seriously, I think of cigarettes the same way I do about gambling…a pure waste of money. I mean, it took me 25 years…

    • Just what do you have those pingbacks hooked up to?

      It always saddens me to see people digging coins out of their pockets to add to a few crumpled up dollar bills to pay for a pack of smokes at the convenience store. Desperation…

        I have these little electrodes that I put on my…well, never mind.
        Yes, I’ve spent my last thin dime on a pack of smokes before…so glad that I quit.

    I hope he doesn’t get too mellow and fall out of his tree.

  7. ” smokers have become self-made pariahs” so true here, too.

  8. He look like a bogart-er to me!
